Day One Omaha Boat Sport and Travel Show

Thursday was the first day of the 2009 Omaha Boat Sport and Travel Show. Woo Hoo!  Great time at the beautiful Qwest Center in Omaha.  If you want to see all the great stuff to do in Nebraska, check out all of the booths.  Below is the Nebraska Division of Travel and Tourism booth, with information on everything across the state.  You can visit the Division's website at www.visitnebraska.gov.


Lots of booths from individual attractions, CVB's and tourism coalitions.  Below is the Central Nebraska Tourism Coalition booth.  Their website can be found at www.centralnebraskaadventures.com/ This time of year, the Sandhill Cranes are the big draw to that area!
Mitch Glidden of Glidden's Canoe Rentals on the Loup and Dismal Rivers would be more than happy to set you up on a Canoe, Kayak or Tanking trip!

Right north of Mitch, Dean Jacobs of Valentine will help you plan a wonderful vacation along the historic Niobrara river.

A little further to the south, the Harlan County Lake offers great water sports, hunting and fishing.

Even further to the south, our new friends from Kansas, from the Geary County Convention and Visitor's bureau in the heart of the beautiful Flint Hills got into the picture.  They did point out that at one time, the Kansas-Nebraska act created ONE state, so they feel right at home in a Nebraska blog.

Out west, Sidney welcomes you to the original Cabela's store, the historic Oregon trail sites of Chimney Rock, and Courthouse Rock, as well as beautiful wide open spaces and spectacular scenery.
Back into the heart of the Sandhills, the Calamus Reservoir and scenic Loup River Valley welcomes you to Nebraska's Big Rodeo - Burwell.
Our near neighbors from the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway can line you up with more than 200 miles of scenic byway through the heart of Nebraska.

Work is done, now for a great meal right across the street from the Qwest Center at the Old Mattress Factory.



Then it's off to the Dubliner Irish Pub for a few pints and a night of fine Irish music from The Irish Brigade.



So, we're not at home right now, but thanks for stopping by. The coffee's always on (somewhere).
